I disagree that there is a Biblical basis to say that when Jesus was on the cross dying that "God died".

The Bible does say it was God's blood.

Based on that we can infer the blood belongs to God (Jesus death was a Peace offering to God). We can also read it that this is God's blood because Jesus as the Son of Man became part of the Godhead at His ascension. It is also conclusive proof that the Bible says Jesus is God.

So I agree that God has the experience of death in Jesus, what I don't agree with is that "God died" on the cross.
I don't have the time to look into this now, but I thought Jesus becoming part of the Godhead at His ascension is not a traditional viewpoint. I lean towards Jesus being part of the Godhead since the Incarnation and even prior to that (as Christ). It stems from the unchangeable nature of Christ. I will look into more detail the evidence you have provided about the blood.
